I was looking for a tool to convert ttc to ttf and I kept finding pages with detailed steps for installing the "Vista fonts" on Linux. Many of those detailed walk-throughs included script that simply renamed the CAMBRIA.TTC to CAMBRIA.TTF, so I gave it a try. And since PocketBook basically runs generic Linux stuff ... it worked. Perhaps even Guys In Kiev (TM)
do not know yet that it works ;-)
I keep playing with fonts on my PocketBook looking for THE perfect one. It is strange, I never noticed the font while I was reading paper books. I also accepted the fonts that came with my Sony Reader PRS-500. But now, that I can try various ones, I am noticing the little things. I am also learning quite a few things about various types of serif fonts.
The other day I even gathered quite a few of my favourite paper books from cheapest paperbacks to quality hardbacks, from my childhood favourites to the newest ones and I was comparing fonts. In some cases I was very surprised what I used to consider to be an acceptable font ;-)
At the moment I am alternating between Droid, Gentium, Linux Liberation, Linux Libertine and Deja-vu fonts while trying out other stuff in between.
By the way, do you know a nice slab-serif that can be downloaded for legally for private use in Regular, Bold, Italics and BoldItalics variant?
